5 Secret Delights Just off the Highway in Serenbe

Just off I-85, south of Atlanta and tucked into the serene shade of Chattahoochee Hill Country is the incredibly beautiful land that makes up the Serenbe community. Buildings ooze farmhouse charm while maintaining a nationally recognized eco-friendly footprint that makes a trip to the community a must for any visitor to Georgia.

Only 30 minutes from Atlanta, visitors are greeted by fresh air, farm life and a village among the 1,000 acres, including the renowned restaurant The Farmhouse at Serenbe. Within minutes of your arrival at Serenbe, you’ll understand why the area has been dubbed the “Sonoma for the New South” by the New York Times.

Serenbe isn’t just a few farmhouses, a village and some great restaurants. It’s a community with schools, stores, festivals, a theater and a hotel. Here are a few of my must-visit stops on a trip to Serenbe.
